First edition, first printing. Signed by the author. Publisher's original dark grey cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in the Leornard Baskin illustrated dustwrapper. A lovely near fine copy, the binding square and tight with a small bump at the bottom corner of the upper board. The contents are clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the very lightly creased dustwrapper which remains bright and without loss or tears. Not price-clipped (£3.95 net to the lower front flap).
Signed by Alan Sillitoe in black ink on the title page.
